Welcome to the Forest Hydrology and Soils Laboratory. I am an assistant professor in the Department of Forestry at Mississippi State University. My research interests include forest hyrdology, biogeochemistry, and watershed response to natural and anthropogenic disturbance. Using my background as a physical geographer, I seek to understand the comlex dynamics between forests and their surrounding environments across spatial and temporal scales.
My lab conducts field experiments
in diverse forest systems
across the southeastern United
States. We seek to answer questions
regarding the influence of meteorology
on nutrient dynamics in oak-hickory
forests, the progression of insect
infestation and effects on terrestrial
carbon pools, and the mechanisms of
stemflow generation pathways and
If you are interested in joining the
Forest Hydrology and Soils Lab,
please submit a statement of
interest and a CV.
